Windows So, after much, much speculation and many, many rumours, Microsoft finally took the wraps off Windows Phone 7 Series, its newest mobile operating system. Hold on to your hats, because uncharacteristically for the Redmond giant, they've rebuilt everything from the ground up - this system has little to no connection to the Windows Mobile of yore. I don't say this lightly - but dear lord, Windows Phone 7 Series is full of win. Update: Hands-on video from Engadget inside. Update II: There is no sync application. It's all done over-the-air, to the internet. Only videos and music are synced via the Zune software. Update III: Since I didn't mention it clearly, here it goes: Windows Phone 7 Series is a clean break. There is no backwards compatibility at all. Update IV: Channel9 has a 22-minute in-depth demonstration of Windows Phone 7 Series.

Too much praise, too early

How can anybody be so positive about a phone that they haven´t even held in their hands?

What´s battery like?

How good is the on-screen keyboard?

What real apps are available for it? How well does it integrate with existing server applications for calendaring and email?

For my money, Android is the best phone I have ever had in terms of reliability, features, applications and the fast evolution of the platform.
